I think it's situation specific. If the photo is to be used in competition, then retouching sounds a lot like cheating.
If the photo is used for advertising, well, what does "cheating" mean in the context of advertising, anyway?
If the photo is to be used for legal or scientific purposes, I think it's OK to improve the quality of the photo provided the evidentiary foundation isn't altered. By that I mean it's OK to lighten, darken and sharpen an existing image without otherwise altering the subject-you know, like putting Elaine's head on Mike's body. Stuff like that.
If the photo is for personal satisfaction and amusement, well...
